Det skal I lave

The legendary tour centers around the tale of the Lynch family. Its a fascinating tale of how Walter Lynch is accused and tried for the murder of a visiting Spaniard who was a little too interested in his beautiful wife to be...or was he ? The story ends in a dramatic climax...but you will have to take the tour for that finale !

We also look at the legend of the Claddagh ring with a tale connected to Caribbean pirates, North African slave owners and a gold ring that speaks of eternal love.

Christopher Columbus makes his appearance too, looking for a new way to China, but worrying that Atlantis might stand in his way.

These and other tales are woven together in a 80-90 minute walk through the city. Its taken at a gentle pace to bring in all the major places of interest and embed them into the story of our city.
Other things to note
Dont worry about it raining - we have plenty of places to hide out of the rain !

SPECIAL NOTE: Experiences are always limited to 10 people, but if you would like a private tour please send me an enquiry to schedule a different time.

CHILDREN (under 13) are always free with us, and very welcome!
(and we have a few special stories waiting for them)

We have been running walking tours for over 10 years now, and just love the opportunity to show off our fabulous city. I have always loved history, and used to teach it when working as a educator. History is however so much more than the bare facts, so the stories that get wrapped around the events tend to be even more fascinating and memorable. It's a privilege to be part of the 'story-telling' tradition of the West of Ireland.

PLEASE NOTE : This tour is not aimed at 'History buffs', its about legends, stories, fun and 'getting under the skin' of Galway. Enjoy

Her skal du være

Galway is a fine medieval town, but it has alot of 'hidden' history. We start in the area of Eyre Square, looking for hidden history in the grand old Hardiman Hotel. After a diverting story about a stubbon Irish donkey we're then off to find Colombus' hidden drinking den, the city walls and even where Ed Sheeran knocked out tunes in his busking days. And that's before we get to the Claddagh rings and the Irish version of Atlantis !

Great Tour with Neil. Not only is Neil a Galway local, he genuinely does love the city and has a fantastic knowledge. He tells you the stories and facts of the city, but also adds personal touches and local stories which was nice. Provided local recommendations as you go along the tour. Neil takes into consideration people’s interests and tries to include tips for everyone.

Neil tells a lot of fun stories about things that have gone done around the streets of Galway, definitely different than other walking tours that are history based, but this is what he advertises so it’s a fun different take, but he also is very good at taking you around to all of the important parts of Galway and pointing out some recommendations of places to check out

Neil is a great storyteller with a witty sense of humor. He’ll show you part of Galway otherwise left unexplored. Make sure to ask him about his favorite spots in the city and other parts of Ireland.
